Can you post / explain why you think this is so. What 'symptoms' are you experiencing to suggest a virus?

To date, what scans have you done other than MSE?

Run FULL scans with these (free versions)

http://www.superantispyware.com/

http://www.malwarebytes.org/pr.....ytes_free/

Run separately

Because ever so recently things have been so much CPU use, my computer sometimes shuts off on its own, AND my CPU is like 10% Idle.

Needhelpbro, Do not recall, but I just reply to threads in which may be well under my scope of knowledge. No one in particular.

EDIT: BTW, you can edit a post within 30 min (mods correct me if I'm wrong) if you need to add something. You've posted like 4 of them in within a 10 minute time frame.

I have a new threat, Heur.Agent/Gen-WhiteBox
EDIT: I like how it shows a cookie for a cookie.
ANOTHER EDIT: I like how this site has nice people who are willing to help.

Remember folks Spyware and viruses are two different things. Not all malware is a virus.
